Jamie Foxx may now be a major Hollywood talent, but he didn’t start off life that way. The actor’s childhood wasn’t always an easy one, either – which perhaps makes his rise to the top all the more astounding. After Foxx opened up about his humble beginnings, though, his fans and the public at large found out just what he has had to overcome in order to become an Oscar-winning star.
What’s more, such details may have come as a shock, as Foxx isn’t typically one to broadcast every detail of his private life. Even his relationship with Katie Holmes has been a low-key one; though the couple have reportedly dated for years, they are still yet to officially confirm their romance.
Perhaps, then, Foxx prefers to let his work do the talking for him. And there’s no doubt that he’s had an illustrious career, with an Oscar for his role as Ray Charles in Ray under his belt. He’s a Grammy winner, too, with two awards for his collaborations with T-Pain and Kanye West.
